This week’s horrendous shooting at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston claimed nine victims--including a track coach, a librarian, a state senator, and many other beautiful souls. It’s easy to feel helpless after such a horrible incident. But sometimes even just gathering together can feel like taking a small, positive step.
The Charleston shooter was obsessed with racial segregation and the Baltimore riots, and hoped to reignite a race war according to a friend. Instead, his actions inspired prayer vigils at AME churches across the country, including in Baltimore.
Tonight’s rally begins at 6pm at McKeldin Square, at Light and Pratt Streets.
